October 2016, Ascot UK. Silwood Technology Partners with SAP specialist Harlex Consulting to Deliver the Power of Safyr® the Industry’s Only Dedicated Metadata Discovery Software for Packaged Applications.

Harlex Consulting, a SAP® Gold Services Partner and Data Migration and Data Management specialist, and Silwood Technology Limited today announced their strategic partnership. This will see Harlex Consulting harnessing the power of the Silwood Technology’s Safyr® metadata discovery software across the data services they provide with the aim of achieving maximum value for their clients.

Harlex Consulting are industry leaders in helping clients to define and drive clear business advantage through data migration and data management. Harlex Consulting work with clients to plan, manage and deliver complex and often international data transformation programmes, managing and controlling risk through leveraging proven best-practice methodologies.

Harlex will incorporate Silwood Technology’s unique metadata discovery tool Safyr® with their service offerings. One of these is a proprietary Data Migration Methodology which includes a Data Preparation Phase, developed as a result of experience and lessons learnt from extensive data engagements and which now incorporates the usage of Safyr® to speed up delivery and reduce risk.

“The data preparation phase set our projects up for success by allowing clarity of scope and an understanding of key risk areas and priorities right from the start of our engagement. The early quantification of the challenge ahead enables informed planning benefiting both the data work stream and overall solution design.” says Steve Harding, Harlex’s Head of Delivery.

“As soon as I saw the tool in action I understood the benefits and value this could bring to our clients,” says Alex Smith Harlex’s Head of Data Strategy & Engagement, “Harnessing Safyr’s power to rapidly comprehend, visualise and quantify often hidden and complex data models of ERP systems will reduce delivery risk and avoid a lot of common pitfalls faced with data transformation projects. We are excited to offer this product as part of our services.”

Roland Bullivant, Silwood Technology’s Sales and Marketing Director commented: “We are delighted to be working with Harlex who are recognised as leaders in the SAP market due to their extensive knowledge and their deep expertise in successfully delivering information led SAP projects. The combination of our industry leading tool, Safyr and their skillset will result in even more value being provided to customers who are seeking to extend the return on their investment in SAP products.”

Silwood Technology’s Safyr® product accelerates the delivery of the benefits from any change or transformation projects which require an understanding of the metadata which underpins SAP and other major packages from Salesforce and Oracle. Safyr achieves this by giving data professionals control over their ability to understand and exploit the application data model as implemented ensuring that they are working with accurate information and reducing the risks associated with an incomplete understanding of the data.

Safyr® is the industry’s only dedicated metadata discovery software for packaged applications from SAP, Oracle and Salesforce. Safyr® gives analysts, architects and other data professionals the ability to access, understand, share and utilise the underlying data structures for these applications, whenever they need to.

Safyr® achieves this by extracting metadata from the applications as implemented and storing it so it can be easily navigated, searched, filtered, analysed, visualised using business terminology rather than needing to know physical table names.
